YouTube sensation KSI was having none of his brother’s antics after he face Floyd Mayweather in an exhibition bout. The two competed in a lackluster fight with ‘Money’ winning the bout in the 6th round via TKO. However, according to Deji, he gave Mayweather a hard time and was deserving of a spot in the ring with him.

In a video, Deji claimed that anybody who faces him next should be afraid of him. He added that he wouldn’t be scared to fight anyone after being in the ring with one of the best to ever do it. Moreover, he also made the bold claim that Mayweather wasn’t holding back during their exhibition.

It looks like KSI certainly did not hold back, as he dismisses his brother’s claim. If the eye test proves anything, Mayweather looked like he turned it down a notch during the fight and could have finished Deji at any point in the bout. However, given the difference in their skill level, the British YouTuber did try to put up a fight against ‘TBE‘.

However, ‘The NightMare’ has defended his decision to face the ‘Jiu-Jitsu’ ace in a boxing match. In a YouTube video, he clapped back at fans who claimed that he should have faced better competition, like Jake Paul or Tyron Woodley.
